Pyjamas are usually well down on my priority list when it comes to wardrobe planning. Why, well, they are just plain booring right?
But with a regular houseguest and a summer of camping planned it was certainly time I upped my game. My previous pair, made with a big 4 pattern had always seemed a little Nana like in their tiny floral print on a white background in a quality but matronly knit. A fabric that was kindly donated by my mother, from her stash, I suspect because it was too Nana like even for a Nana.
Languishing in my ever increasing fabric stash, was a piece of crushed light weight knit from the op shop that I was struggling to actually find a purpose for. Pyjamas were the obvious choice. Teamed with a remnant of rayon knit for trim and using Papercut Anima and Tessuti Alexa patterns, I had a plan.
The only alteration I made to either piece was to reduce the leg band width by around half.
